Child benefit reform is back on track

Published on 07/05/2015

This commentary analyzes the Liberals’ proposed Canada Child Benefit. It is a historic advance in income security policy for families. The Canada Child Benefit is everything the present hodgepodge of child benefits is not: a single, simple and transparent social program compared to the current collection of child benefits. It is not subject to income tax and is indexed to inflation. The proposed Canada Child Benefit is a win-win initiative that will fight child poverty and boost the incomes of the middle class.
